In 1958, more than a hundred thousand people attended the inauguration ceremony of Nanyang University (Nantah), a true ¡°people¡¯s university¡± that was founded with the support of all strata of society, from tycoons to trishaw-men. After producing 12,000 graduates and winning global recognition, the institution, the first Chinese-medium university outside China, held her final convocation in 1980. Drawing from the author¡¯s own research and diverse sources that have never before been available in English, this book tells the fascinating story of Nantah¡¯s short and eventful life and deconstructs the many myths and misconceptions that continue to surround her.
